A stand-alone novel in Allyson Lindt's Love Equation contemporary romance series.

He's a porn kingpin, she's a virgin... and his best friend's younger sister. It's a pairing directly off one of his fetish sites. He promised to keep his distance, but no one else can help her get over her public performance issues when it comes to her ballet.

Gets an extra star for tackling difficult subjects well. Gets a terrible review for romance novel. If falling love could be achieved by spilling all your intimate secrets to someone I feel like there would be more therapist romances.

Girl- I'm emotionally and physically a virgin
Boy- I'm literally and figuratively scarred
Girl- my father kicked me out so I could follow my dream... to sleep with Boy

I love Andrew! Who could resist the cheeky porno chief with a quick wit and self-depreciation. Handsome but scarred from life he meets his best friends younger sister Susan. She is like pixie dust - a free spirit filled with compassion honesty and a dancer too. They pull out the best in each other but with so much against them who could tell what was going to happen from page to page. Its a love-story, not quite the normal romance - it goes far deeper than that. Bring into the mix complex ...more

I'm giving this one a 4, but it comes with a caveat: the cheesy title (note: which I bought as "The Virgin and the Kingpin," though I guess it's since been renamed "Renting Romance") does not match the heartfelt, deep and real romance contained in this book. That's a good thing. But I think it did set me up to expect something a little more light-hearted and sparky than what I got - I wandered away from this story for weeks before coming back to finish it. It's incredibly well told, as ...more

Despite a few things I could've done without, I enjoyed Renting Romance, and the story kept me interested. In this book, Susan, who is Mercy's sister from the first book in this series, meets Andrew, who is one of Mercy's best friends and who was also her lover at one time, Andrew is in town for Mercy's wedding and to work with Mercy on his ad campaign for the porn company he owns, when he comes across Susan and helps her out of what could've been a bad situation. Andrew and Susan feel an

It deadass took me more than a year to finish this, that should tell you everything you need to know about this book lmao. I was kinda disappointed and it took a while to finish because, wow, what a misleading blurb!

For this to be a book about a horny virgin and a porn mogul, it was pretty fucking boring. You wanna know how many sex scenes there are in this romance about a horny virgin and a porn king. 2.5 sex scenes. And the .5 is me being generous. The sex scenes were hot. I was into it. But
The Mysterious Reader
I dont know if its my inner (ok, outer as well) geek or love of a good romance, but Im a big fan of Allyson Lindt. This of course includes (but by all means is not at all limited to) her Love Equation series. No surprise then that I totally got into The Virgin and The Kingpin. Andrew is a fun character and its great watching him switch from his absorption with Mercy to (no matter how hard he resists) true love for Susan. Great (hot) story, excellent plot and writing, superbly crafted characters. ...more

Witty read

The novel was interesting, thought some would say porn is too taboo of a word. The story line was a bit typical with the agony and demons the hero carried within. Although, still enjoyable to see how the heroine captures the all time bachelor with her innocence. I will say this is a read at your own risk type of novel for there is a trigger warning scene that some wont like in this day in age. Thus, this is your warning.

Allyson Lindt's "Renting Romance" is the fourth tale in the Your Ad Here series. I was waiting to find out more about Andrew. I love how broken he is. He has a lot of depth to his character, and many different issues to overcome. Lots of sexy chemistry. I love his descriptions of can tell he is truly enamored with her. I had to go start reading "Boarding Buddies" (the story of Andrew & Mercy's past, which you can get through the author's newsletter) right away.

It pulled me in

I wasn't too sure about this, I gave it a go, and then thought "nah its not for me" I turned my kindle off. However the story kept nagging on at me, what had happened to Andrew? What's the plot twist with Susan? So I had to read more. It totally sucked me in, the heartbreaking story of Lucas and the single mindedness of Susans dad. There was just enough twists and turns to keep me interested, and not at all a loot of porn like I originally thought.

Unexpectedly pleasant

I really expected a ton of smutlike stuff in this book. I have to say I was very happily surprised to find very little sexual stuff and a very well written story!I really enjoyed the ups and downs throughout the different relationships written about. Father and daughter, friend and friend, ex and ex, employer and employee, but most of all, lover to lover. It was a fantastic experience to read it!

A good read

This is the first time I've read anything from this author, so I didn't know what to expect. I liked it. There was enough depth to get a real sense of the characters and enough story to keep you engaged the whole way through. I will say, considering Andrew's industry and all of the innuendo, the intimate scenes were a bit lacking for me. I don't really know how to explain it, but I was expecting more.

The Book was nice but for the profession the main character did not fit well in the story

I felt the book lacked content for both characters. The plot was okay but not great. The characters did not interact Sith the storyline. This book is a clean content for young ears although the role model should have been raw in places in the book.

I love this book! I love how absolutely depraved Andrew is/was. I love that Susan was the only one who could have fit him, made him want better, made him think he deserved better, made him realize he could be.
This book was dark, sexy, and angsty, and honest and heartwarming and pervertedly charming.

I usually only give a one star if I DNF a book. I actually finished this one, so I gave it two stars. It piqued my curiosity, but it wasnt great. The plot was all over the place and very one dimensional at the same time. Probably wont be taking a chance on any more of these. ...more

I mean... with a name like "The Virgin and the Kingpin" you can't expect too much. I do expect a lot fewer typos though. Man. Of course, this book was free, and I read it all, so I couldn't have hated it that much.

Needs work

Sweet story but a bit slow at times. Needs some editing and grammatical checks. Characters are interesting but a better understanding of some of their pasts would have clarified things.

A five star read! Delicious fantasies, strong desire, angst and finally love. Andrew is a hard one to figure out. Susan is innocent but determined. It will keep you on your toes.

I really liked this story, the girl is cute and sweet. I always love a good Virgin taking Story! The Kingpin in the title kinda threw me off, I was expecting a drug kingpin. But overall good read, not boring, story kept progressing never slowed down.

Is There A Story Here?

I couldn't finish...its just talk about sex sex sex, make it explicit and con a virgin...granted, she seems to be interested but the story line is pretty damned scant! Zzzzzzzz
Sexy virgin trope is not my favourite but I was surprised that the romance had charm and sweetness at times, as well as steamy heat. However there was too much drama and angst and from rest of family so won't re-read. TOASTED from my Ebook Library.

The Virgin and the Kingpin

If you like overly protective sisters, mean and aggressive fathers, and commit-a-phobe lovers, then this is the book for you!
